President Barack Obama has nominated Ron Walter, president and general manager of WREG-TV, to the Tennessee Valley Authority board.

Obama announced the nomination of Walter Thursday, Aug. 28, with the nomination going to the U.S. Senate for approval.

Walter was recommended to the White House by U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen.

Walter worked for Memphis Light, Gas and Water Division, TVA’s largest customer, from 1980 to 1987 as assistant to the utility president and then as vice president of customer relations.

He went to work for WREG as director of marketing, production and client services in 1987 and held several positions – including vice president of government and public relations, vice president and station manager, and executive vice president and station manager – before becoming president and general manager in 2004.
